It's Coffee Break Time

Good Mornin to you all out there!!!! I hope you all have had a great week, just full of the things that you love and things you enjoy doing!! What makes your week great?? I know when I can spend a lot of time in my scrap room creating, it makes for a happy and peaceful week... what about you????

Of course it's Wednesday Diva challenge time again... seems to roll around about the same time every week... isn't that amazing?? HA!! Have you thought about making cards along with us, and taking the challenge... well, we welcome you to having a lot of fun and using your creativity. Join us won't you??!!

The challenge this week was to make a card with the Big Shot. Ya know I have plenty of tools, and when SU started with the Big Shot, I really wondered IF it was ANOTHER tool that I just had to have. Well, I've been playing around for a while with my Big Shot, and I tell ya, it's a really great machine... it's easy to use... it's able to accept other dies... and the dies available are really easy to use in making cards and scrapbooking. So think about one for yourself. You can order from my SU website 24/7... it doesn't close!!

My card was almost ALL from my Big Shot... I don't know that I have made too many cards without stampin!! I used Sizzix Flower Layers with Leaf, Flowers Layers #3, and one of the Texturz plates. I used Green Galore , Bashful Blue and So Saffron inks. I also added color to my card by using SU's chalks. The paper I used is: Delicate Dots DSP, So Saffron cardstock, Baja Breeze DSP, Bashful Blue cardstock, and Green Galore cardstock. I die cut several of the flowers from the two Sizzix dies that I used, put them together to create a lot of color interest, and then cut the card along that edge in the shape of the flowers. It's kinds hard to tell from looking at the picture, but the second strip of the Green Galore textured cardstock is on the inside of the card. I hope I've explained it so it can be understood. I know you will find lots of inspiration on the other Diva's blogs... so be sure and visit them, you will be glad you did!! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my blog, it is a real pleasure to have you here!!!! Stop back again.

Enjoy your week!! It's a gift ya know!!
